What are the two main reasons bandages are applied? cover soft tissue wounds and to stabilize a fracture
What are the three layers to a bandage? primary, secondary, tertiary
What are some examples of the primary layer? telfa pad, wet to dry gauze, dry to dry gauze, hydrogels, hydrocolloids, polyurethane film or foam, tegaderm, adaptic
What is the difference between an adherent primary layer and a nonadherent primary layer? adherent primary helps with debridement of wounds while nonadherent primary is used when there is granulation tissue already forming
What is the main purpose of the secondary layer of a bandage? absorbs and holds exudate and provides some immobilization and support
What is the main purpose of the tertiary layer of a bandage? it is the outer, protective layer that keeps the other layers in place and is the layer that exerts the most pressure on the leg
What are examples of secondary layers of a bandage? roll cotton or cast padding
What are examples of tertiary layers of a bandage? vetrap, elastikon
